Safety / Signaling Devices


Safety First
Attract attention to yourself, from a humble Whistle, to the more advanced Personel Locating Beacon, we can make it happen.

Compasses
A standard magnetic compass is a good back up to a GPS. There's no point in replicating, just use your diving compass.

Safety Beacons
Satellite based personal distress, location and tracking beacons. In the event of an emergency these provide the best possible chance of being found. They are very much a last resort and should only be used in situations of EMERGANCY. Unwarranted activation can lead to prosecution.

Strobe lights/torches
They're not a distress signal but will aid your location when used in conjunction with other signals or devices also very handy at night. A good quality depth rated dive strobe light/torches are a necessary for divers, but kayak fisherman can also benefit from the strength, durability and waterproof qualities in such a wet environment.

© Unknown

Depth: 2 m (6.56 ft) to 5 m (16 ft)

Level: Open Water and beyond.

Ideal Conditions:
Best dived with northerly to south-easterly winds. Avoid diving with strong southerly to north-westerly winds. Just before the high tide will give the clearest water. See WillyWeather (Brighton Beach) as a guide for the tide times and the height of the tide.

What To Expect:
The Green Point, Brighton dive site is located on the Eastern side of Port Phillip.

This is a convenient place to dive where you can transit the point and back as shown. From the beach, head out west-south-west. Then follow the edge of the reef as you head north. If you venture over the reef, be aware that it can get quite shallow, so monitor your depth. It's easy for snorkellers to explore the top of the reef. Your air consumption will determine when you reach your turnaround point.

Green Point is a great site for beginners and night dive enthusiasts. It's so close to the city, thus very convenient for those living in Melbourne. Great for getting back in the water, a night dive after work, or just an excuse to get wet! The famous Brighton beach boxes are only a few hundred metres away around the point of land to the north.

Dive Entry:
Walk south down the ramped path and enter the water from the beach south of the reef. The water is very shallow at first. Always take a dive float with dive flag!

DISCLAIMER: No claim is made by The Scuba Doctor as to the accuracy of the dive site coordinates listed here. Should anyone decide to use these GPS marks to locate and dive on a site, they do so entirely at their own risk. Always verify against other sources.

The marks come from numerous sources including commercial operators, independent dive clubs, reference works, and active divers. Some are known to be accurate, while others may not be. Some GPS marks may even have come from maps using the AGD66 datum, and thus may need be converted to the WGS84 datum. To distinguish between the possible accuracy of the dive site marks, we've tried to give each mark a source of GPS, Google Earth, or unknown.
